Bartle Frere Exhibitions, Mary Euphrasia Mosley Fund, and Worts Travelling Scholars Fund: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2008, pp. 716, 774, 836, and 935

The Managers of the Mary Euphrasia Mosley Fund invite applications for the following awards:

The Mary Euphrasia Mosley Fund

The Mary Euphrasia Mosley Fund provides awards for the encouragement of travel to the countries of the Commonwealth and dependent territories, excluding the United Kingdom, for the promotion of study or research and for the maintenance of good relations between them. Candidates must be members of the University who are not of standing to become Masters of Arts.

Bartle Frere Exhibitions

Bartle Frere Exhibitions are awarded annually for study or research in any branch of knowledge relating to a Commonwealth country other than the United Kingdom, Bangladesh, India, or Pakistan. The Managers will give preference to undergraduates intending to spend the period of tenure undertaking research in one of the countries provided for in the regulations but Graduate Students will also be considered.

The Worts Travelling Scholars Fund

Grants from the Worts Travelling Scholars Fund are made annually for the promotion or encouragement of investigations in countries outside Great Britain respecting the religion, learning, law, politics, customs, manners, and rarities, natural or artificial, of those countries, or for purposes of geographical discovery or of antiquarian or scientific research in such countries, subject to any conditions as to publication of the results of investigations which may be laid down at the time of the making of the grant. The Managers will give preference to undergraduates but Graduate Students travelling to non-Commonwealth countries or to Bangladesh, India, or Pakistan will also be considered. These grants are made to individuals or expeditions on the basis of recommendations and are therefore not transferable.

The Managers wish to make known that they do not support the following activities: participation in study programmes or language courses (although a contribution towards the costs of course-related work experience abroad may be considered); conferences (either to present a paper or to attend); charitable activities; fieldwork for M.Phil. theses; medical electives; or seeing veterinary practice.

Successful applicants will normally offer both a good academic record and a good project proposal.

Applications must be made on the prescribed form, which may be obtained from the Registrary (addressed to the Awards Clerk), The Old Schools, Cambridge, CB2 1TN (tel. (3)32318), by 1 March 2009. Late applications cannot be considered. When more than one individual is involved in any project a separate application, with supporting letters, must be submitted by each applicant. Applicants must state clearly which country or countries they intend to visit.

Applications must be submitted to the Registrary, addressed to the Awards Clerk as above. Applicants must ask one person, who may be a Tutor or Director of Studies, to send a supporting letter to the Registrary to reach him not later than the closing date. The Managers will meet towards the end of April.

Successful applicants are required to submit a report and a financial report of their expedition to the Secretariat by 1 December annually.
